Long Description:
Wine lover and entrepreneur Dennis Horton began his winemaking venture with a small home vineyard in Madison County, Virginia in 1983. It did not take him long to realize that, although the Virginia summers were warm enough to ripen almost any grape variety, the humid conditions favored growing grapes with thicker skins and loose clusters. The search was on for varieties that would flourish in the Virginia growing region and had the capacity to make some of the finest wines in the world.

He settled on the viogner grape from the Rhone Valley, and California. He Added a grape native to America, Horton. Later on He added smaller plantings of other grapes, began experimenting with various fruits and currently has an extensive wine list.
